United v Everton Preview!

After dropping another two points on our travels, this time at Newcastle, we have the chance to get back to winning ways when we entertain Everton this Saturday lunchtime. With the game featured live on Sky Sports, what better way to issue a statement of intent than with an emphatic win over the Merseyside team.

Vital Quotes:

Everton have had almost enigmatic qualities this season. David Moyes (a possible candidate to replace Sir Alex at Old Trafford when he retires) has seen his side hit badly by injuries and, at times, has had to name a plethora of youngsters on hi substitutes` bench, but still they are within reach of obtaining European qualification.

Is that something that could make them dangerous opponents this Saturday lunchtime?

John Heitinger, their Dutchman certainly thinks so when he comments,

"There is still a chance we could qualify for Europe and we will try our hardest. We know it is going to be hard but the way we are playing anything is possible"

Dangerous opponents at a crucial time of the season and a possible dangerous recipe!

Manchester United Team News:

Sir Alex will, no doubt, endeavour to shuffle his pack as he juggles what is required to attain success on two fronts, the Premier League and the Champions League.

Definitely out of contention is Paul Scholes who remains suspended after his red card at Wembley last weekend.

Rated as doubtful are Rio Ferdinand and Dimitar Berbatov whilst definitely out through injury are Owen Hargreaves and Darren Fletcher

Player to watch: Wayne Rooney

Wouldn`t it be just typical if Wayne could get the winner against his former club, after all such things are always happening are they not?

Everton Team News:

David Moyes, seeking a win that will give his side a further chance to enhance the possibility of Everton qualifying for Europe will have to do so without the services of the injured Baxter, Saha and Fellaini whilst there are also injury doubts about Cahill, Arteta and Hetinga.

Everton have nobody missing through suspension.

Player to watch: Tim Howard

The American keeper will be relishing the chance to return to Old Trafford to deprive his old side of adding those three points that will take us nearer to that crucial 19th top flight title. Let`s hope he`s kept busy!

Match Facts & Stats

United have the upper hand when it comes to Premier League games against Everton. The last seventeen meetings between the two clubs, at Old Trafford, have seen United win 14 with 3 being drawn.

Everton`s last win, at Old Trafford, came in 1992 when they triumphed 3-0!

The reciprocating fixture this season saw the honours share din a six goal thriller.

Ref Watch:

Our officials are as follows;- Referee Peter Walton Assistants - Mike Cairns and Ron Ganfield Fourth Official - Kevin Friend

Match Prediction:

Our title chances, this season, have been enhanced by a wonderful home record that has seen us amass 52 points out of a possible 54. It`s difficult to see Everton upsetting that particular apple-cart and I`m going for another three points, possibly by 2-0!

Next Fixtures:

This season, which still has the potential to become a fantastic one, continues with us set to face Schalke 04, in a Champions League semi-final in Germany on Tuesday evening.

Come on Everton boys!!! I can feel a drought breaking victory, hopefully United play a weakened side and we take advantage of it. The player you have to look out for is Osman, he is probably the in form player of the league at the moment, he is everything for us right now. Come on, heart says a hard fought 1-0 win (with Beckford finding the net) but head says optimistically a draw, but a loss, without Saha, Fellaini, Heitinga and potentially Arteta and Cahill i dont see it happening

I've got great respect for Everton and Moyes, with such limited funding they have assembled a really talented side. Should be a tough game, 2-0 our way I reckon.

We've started to do better against your lot at Goodison the last 5 or 6 years, but we always roll over for you at Old Trafford. 3-0 United.
